CHARMING KID (NAP) has been rested since running below par in the Richmond at Goodwood in August. But his earlier third behind Advertise in the Group 2 July Stakes at Newmarket is the best piece of form on offer and Richard Fahey's colt gets the vote on his return. Quiet Endeavour notched-up a couple of handicap victories before disappointing when favourite for a Group 3 contest at Kempton while Sunsprite had a tough task in the Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar last time having landed a hat-trick earlier in the summer. You Never Can Tell was well beaten in Group 3 races before winning a novices event at Newcastle while She Can Boogie has shown good progress in handicaps but has plenty to find on these terms as does Deputise.
